I've decided that enough is enough. My townmates are being resilient and stubborn; our organization, a complete mess. It's time for me to bite the bullet and get out of this town so I can go Die2Nite elsewhere. How do I kill myself?

I hope this doesn't get to be the top result on google... :) – Gordon Gustafson Nov 24 '10 at 16:31
I hope it does. It's better than some of the current top results that give 'useful' advice on the subject. – LessPop_MoreFizz Nov 24 '10 at 16:32

If you have a cyanide tablet available to you, you can suicide instantly.

The alternative options are myriad, but slower. The most obvious choice is waiting for nightfall. Just wait outside the city gates. Zombies will happily oblige you.

Note that dying of suicide or outside the gates at night will cause any achievements from the previous day to be lost (it's considered not living through the whole day). If you're really feeling evil, you could open the gates right before the attack to avoid this (and possibly get the last man standing achievement). EDIT: As LessPop points out, the portal lock prevents this. You could still try your luck, opening the gate right before 23:40 and hoping nobody notices.

You can't open the gates at the last second once your town has installed a Portal Lock. This prevents the gates from being opened after 23:40 and is generally one of the first upgrades built by most towns. – LessPop_MoreFizz Nov 24 '10 at 15:30
Can you use a loaded gun? – GnomeSlice Dec 1 '10 at 23:36
Also, achievements from that day won't be lost if it's the 5th day or later. – Ullallulloo Dec 2 '10 at 19:16
